Enlarged Prostate or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. It is often used interchangeably though incorrectly with another term – Benign Prostate Hypertrophy.
Prostate, a walnut shaped gland is a part of male reproductive system and is situated in front of the rectum and below the bladder. It surrounds the urethra.
This condition commonly affects the elderly male population above the age of 60 years and involves an increase in the number of cells of the prostate gland leading to its enlargement. The enlarged prostate gland compresses the urethra leading to interruption of normal urine flow leading to urinary retention.
1) Minimally Invasive Techniques :
In this procedure, a radiopaque dye is injected into the vein of the leg after which an X-ray of the venous network is carried out (venography). Then a medicine that shrinks the blood vessels is injected into the vein (sclerotherapy) resulting in reduction of prostate volume. This provides relief in cases of nocturia, improves bladder emptying and increases urine outflow. There are minimum sideeffects as compared to traditional surgery.
2) Surgical Procedures:
Green Light Laser PVP (Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate) is a procedure used in the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Green Light Laser PVP is a recent addition to the minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of BPH
The procedure uses the technology of high-powered laser light combined with fiber optics. The surgeon directs the laser at the prostate, within moments the temperature of the blood becomes so fine it causes the nearby cells to vaporize.
There is growing interest in this procedure by patients and as well as by the surgeons because of its simplicity and effectiveness. A temporary catheter is often inserted to allow urine to drain from the bladder. The procedure takes near about one hour....Read More
"To discover that I suffered from enlarged Prostate which had some cancer involvement was quite a shock for me just after I turned 55 years last December. I then went to the Internet and found this website Safemedtrip.com amongst several others. I sent e-mails of my reports with my specific problem outlined to three sites.
Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and walking unassisted and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on my feet. The staff at the hospital were all smiles and very helpful. I enjoyed all my meals during my stay. I would recommend anyone who needs a Prostate Surgery to go for the Robotic option, it is a bit expensive but the pay offs are superb – less pain, quick recovery and no fear of complications.
Thank you all and God bless you!"
